Raised Chicken Coop Perfect for a Flock of Up to 4 Hens
The Eglu Go UP is the perfect solution if you want a small flock of chickens in your garden. This portable chicken house is suitable for up to 4 small to medium sized chickens, such as Pekin bantams and Gingernut Rangers, or 2-3 larger breeds, like Orpingtons.
The Eglu Go UP has all the benefits of the Eglu Go, but at a convenient, raised height. Your hens will love roosting up off the ground and laying in the private nest area, while you will appreciate not having to bend down to collect eggs or clean the coop, making chicken keeping even more of a delight!
Super Quick and Easy to Clean in Just a Few Minutes
Cleaning your Eglu Go UP mobile chicken house is quick and easy, and it will only take you a few minutes a week to keep it in great condition. The removable plastic roosting bars are carefully designed to allow all the droppings to fall through onto the tray underneath. This can then be removed and emptied straight into the compost bin (chicken droppings make brilliant fertilizer for your plants).
All the smooth surfaces are made from a high density waterproof polymer which you can pressure wash to get your chickens’ coop spotlessly clean in less than 5 minutes.
The Eglu Go UP is designed for zero maintenance. Unlike wooden housing, you will never need to paint or re-roof your Eglu - saving you time and money.

Spacious, Heavy Duty Steel Run Keeps Hens Safe
The chicken run for the Eglu Go UP is made from strong steel weld mesh that will resist the most persistent of predators, and the dark green coating will blend into your garden beautifully. A secure run gives you peace of mind that your chickens are safe while you’re not at home or spending time in the garden with them. Eglu runs have been rigorously tried and tested for over 15 years. Click play on the image to see the difference between an Eglu run and standard chicken wire.
The unique anti-tunnel skirt lays flat on the ground to prevent animals from digging in. This is a unique feature of Omlet’s chicken runs and is incredibly successful in deterring foxes and other predators. You can position the Eglu hen house and run on grass, wood chippings or soil, and if the area is uneven you can secure the anti-tunnel skirt to the ground with Omlet’s Screw Pegs.
Easy to Move Around Your Garden With Optional Wheels
The Eglu Go UP is available with optional wheels, which make moving the chicken coop to a new spot in your garden super easy, even for one person. Simply press the foot pedal and the raised chicken house will gently rise so you can effortlessly wheel it to a fresh area of grass.
The wheels can be used with the Eglu Go UP with or without the run, they attach to the frame of the house. If you’ve got a longer run, or a particularly uneven lawn, the Eglu Run Handles will make moving the coop even easier.

One Hand to Open and Lock the Front Door
Letting your chickens out in the morning and securing the Eglu Go UP chicken house at night couldn’t be simpler. By lifting and turning the handle on top of the coop you open and close the door, locking and unlocking in one intuitive movement. No fiddly catches and bolts that don’t line up - it’s been designed to work even with gloves on which you’ll really appreciate in winter! Once the door is closed and locked in position, no chicken can escape and no predator can get in.
Comfortable Nest Box for Your Hens to Lay Delicious Eggs
One of the best things about being a chicken keeper is the fresh eggs your hens will provide you with every day; without a doubt the best eggs you will ever taste! Your hens will sleep snugly on the perfectly rounded roosting bars and they’ll love the integrated nesting box in the Eglu Go UP. You can fill the nest with bedding and look forward every morning to collecting eggs by opening the large door at the back.
Great in All Weathers, Keeps Hens Warm in Winter and Cool in Summer
Eglu coops are used by chicken keepers all over the world from Australia to Canada and everywhere in between. Why? Because they provide protection from all types of weather extremes.
The Eglu Go UP keeps your hens warm in winter. It has a unique twin-wall insulation system that works in a similar way to double glazing in your house, by trapping a pocket of air between two surfaces. This is an extremely effective way of insulating the coop, making sure the body heat from your chickens has nowhere to go!
In summer the same insulation will keep your chickens cool, and the draught-free ventilation system has been designed to keep fresh air circulating in the coop at all times, without air blowing directly over the roosting and nesting area.
Extendable Run and Easy to Connect to a Large Walk in Run
You can extend the fox resistant run at any time with run extension packs in approximately 1m long sections, made of the same strong steel weld mesh as the Eglu run. You can use the extra space to add fun treat dispensing toys, like the Peck Toy or Caddi Treat Holder.
Another popular option for providing your hens with secure space to exercise is to connect your coop to a Walk In Chicken Run. These extremely popular runs offer the benefit of added height so you can go into the run and hang out with your hens. It’s a great solution if you are not able to let your chickens free range in the garden during the day. The dark green mesh will also blend in beautifully, so that the chickens’ home can be a natural part of the garden. You can even accessorise your run with a traditional wooden perch, or modern Chicken Swing!
Stable-Style Run Doors Open Independently for Easy Access
The Eglu Go UP has a convenient, and practical stable-style door at the end of the run. The top and bottom open independently of each other, and both have run pins to secure them in an open or closed position. Open both doors when you want to allow your chickens out in the garden or to get full access to the run, or keep the bottom door closed if you want to do a quick feeder and drinker refill without your hens escaping.
Ergonomic Ladder Grips Help Smaller and Rescued Chickens
The new and improved ladder design has larger, non-slip rungs that your chickens will find comfortable to grip in all seasons. The durable, all-weather grips simply clip on to the rungs of the Eglu Go UP ladder to provide a large non-slip surface. The grips are especially useful for older, less agile chickens, or for young hens who are perhaps using the ladder for the first time, but will be appreciated by chickens of all ages. The Eglu Ladder Grips have been a standard feature of the Eglu Go UP chicken coop since October 2019 and are fully compatible with all Eglu Go UP coops bought before this date.
Easy to Assemble
The Eglu Go UP comes in convenient boxes that are shipped with a courier service. A clear large format step-by-step instruction manual is included to help you build your new chicken coop quickly with one or two people. There’s also a brilliant real time “How to Build” video which you can watch here to see each assembly step being performed.
All you need to assemble the Go UP house and frame is a screwdriver, and the run is put together using Omlet's patented run clips.

Frequently Asked Questions
While the strong materials and thought out design makes it extremely hard for predators to get to your pets, no coop is 100% predator proof. Check the coop and run regularly to make sure all features are working as intended, including latches, doors and run clips.
If you live in an area with lots of predators, you might want to consider adding additional protection to the run. Keep on top of egg collecting and control rodents to minimise the risk of attracting snakes and lizards. If you've seen possums or other particularly dexterous animals around your yard, it's also a good idea to find a way to secure doors and latches with extra locks to stop them getting to your flock.
The metal chicken runs are designed to be used outdoors for years to come. However, we recommend that you check the run regularly for signs of corrosion, especially if you live somewhere with extreme weather conditions or close to the sea. Corrosion will occur if the coating has been scratched or scraped for example. If you do see some, remove any loose rust and touch up with a weather resistant paint. If you have covers on your run and experience heavy snowfall it's advised you clear the snow off the roof to avoid the panels being damaged from the weight.
